The Walking Dead, Vol. 31 TP

They show us gore and violence and all that cool stuff too That's what makes Romero films so great. I'm in this for the long haul, and I'm pretty sure Tony is too. You guy are going to see Rick change and mature to the point that when you look back on this issue you won't even recognize him.

I hope you guys are looking forward to a sprawling epic, because that's the idea of this one. So, if anything scares you But this is NOT a horror book. I like the term "survivalist adventure. This book is more about watching Rick survive than it is about watching zombies pop around the corner and scare you.

I hope that's what you guys are into. All the story commentary aside, at the very least, even if you hate the thing I've been working with Tony Moore for as long as I can remember.

Tony really pulled out all the stops on this one. I can really tell that he shares my immense love for the subject matter. This book is really a thing of beauty.

I couldn't be more pleased with how it's turning out. I hope you all agree. So let us know, tell us what you liked, tell us what you didn't like.

Send praises, gripes, whatever The needed info is somewhere on this page I'm sure, so there's really no excuse.

To put it into the Marxist terminology deployed by Kristeva, the text is in production and the reader, author, and analyst join in on the continual production of meaning , p. Jonathan Gray offers further insight into intertextuality through the lens of textual phenomenology.

In other words, Gray is looking at how a text becomes a text, rather than the content of said text. With paratexts, Genette was referring to book covers, typefaces, headings, and so forth. Gray contemporizes the word paratext by also including contingent media such as comic books, novels, prequels, sequels, and toys to the list of items that can help assist in the meaning or understanding of a text.

Ott and Walter have also illustrated the different uses for paratext. They demonstrated that intertextuality is an interpretive practice by the reader of a text, and then lay out the framework for the strategic practice by the authors to make specific connections to other texts.

The use of transmedia storytelling is illustrated by Henry Jenkins in his book Convergence Culture when he discusses the Matrix phenomenon. Jenkins makes the case that all texts movie, games, and comics in the Matrix franchise work in conjunction with each other to create a complete understanding of the Matrix story This concept allows for participants to navigate and master as much of the fictional world as they can, thus allowing for more direct engagement with The Walking Dead universe.

The similarities to the opening of a movie or TV show are fairly typical of any contemporary video game; what is worth noting about this scene lies within the art direction and typeface.

The first text you see in the game is in the very same typeface that is used throughout the comic book series, and all of the lettering in the game world resembling the font used in the comic books. For instance, when the group of survivors arrives at Everett Pharmacy the typeface can be discerned on signs inside and outside the building. The game is introduced with a full screen rendering of the same logo found on the comic book covers. Telltale could have obtained the font and logo from the television series—which is different than the comics—or even created their own original font and logo, yet what we see is the first purposeful usage of a visual cue that creates a link between the game and the comics.

When the logo fades, we see the Savannah highway and then Lee Everett, all while being given our second visual cue—cel shading. Cel shading is type of non-photorealistic image rendering where artists use specific tools to make 3D models look more like hand-drawn images Hachigian, n.

Jet Set Radio was one of the early video games which employed this type of rendering, but it was considered to be more cartoon-like than comic Gamespot, However, the release of Viewtiful Joe made cel shading synonymous with games attempting to mimic the style of comic books.

The 3D zombies provides the most vivid example of aesthetic convergence. Telltale manages to capture and animate the grotesque monsters in a way that is visually reflective of the comics.


The cel shaded aesthetic carries throughout the entire game since it is. The visual cues players are exposed to in the first moments of the game, and then throughout the entirety of season one, serve the purpose of self-reflexive inclusion. The use of cel shading technology as well as the comments by Dan Connors and Robert Kirkman make it quite clear that the game is meant to have the aesthetic appeal of the comic series.

Therefore the game is integrating and appropriating the art style of the comics. The typeface is also self-reflexive reference to the comic book series and elicits a different understanding of the culture, history, and functioning of the world than if the typeface of the television show was present.

Telltale is visually reminding the player that this is, indeed, the world created by the comic book. The visual connection between the game and the comic book also sets it apart from the television series.

For instance, if the game should have been based in the narrative world of the television series, key scenes from the game would have contradicting meaning to fans of the television show. By including the art style of the comic and referencing the comic book throughout the game with the typeface, Telltale is visually assisting players to access the transmedia story between comic and game.

Not surprisingly, they are aesthetically similar to their depictions in the comic, but also serve a larger purpose within the game universe.

First, they serve to make a connection between the game and the comics. Second, they reward players by adding new knowledge to the canon of the comics. The first crossover character that players meet is Shawn Greene, the son of Hershel Greene. Shawn is on the streets of Savannah and is in need of assistance. At the farm, the players find Hershel.

After an introductory exchange with Lee, Hershel allows them to stay in the barn with another family who is seeking refuge for the night.

The other family consists of Kenny, his wife Katjaa, and son Kenny junior, who is affectionately nicknamed Duck; the family goes on to play a crucial role in The Walking Dead game. From here, players can perform a series of tasks or choose to have conversations with the new characters they meet.

After performing certain tasks, Lee hears screams coming from Shawn and Duck who have been working together. Lee rushes to the tractor that they were working on, and sees that the tractor has pinned Shawn to the ground by running over his leg. To make matters worse, zombies have grabbed Duck and are inching towards Shawn.

Players are then prompted to make a decision—to save Shawn or save Duck. Players only have a few moments to make a decision. After hearing the commotion, Hershel sees that his son has been bitten, throws the refugees off the farm, and mourns the death of his son. Shortly after these events, players meet Glenn Rhee. He is the member of a survivor group that is in Macon, Georgia. Glenn is with several other survivors who have been camping out there for an indeterminate amount of time.

Glenn volunteers to go on a supply run, something he is known for doing in the comics, and ends up getting trapped at a local hotel. He hides out in an icebox until Lee and another survivor venture out to find him.

Once they do, Glenn brings attention to crying coming from one of the hotel rooms. Glenn convinces Lee and the other survivor to try and help the person who seems to be in distress. Even though the trio helps the crying survivor, it turns out she has been bitten by a zombie and she commits suicide.

This is the last time Glenn is heard from in the game.

Indeed, moves like this allow for players who have little or no knowledge of the The Walking Dead comics to experience the game. This is important to keep in mind, as the narrative in the comics does not begin until about a month later when Rick Grimes wakes up from a coma.

In other words, players are being exposed to a point in time that has not been addressed previously. Why not share! Embed Size px. Start on.
